Liberals Express Frustration That President Awesome Won't Up His Game

The heat makes everybody a little bitchy, doesn't it?

Republicans and Democrats have unleashed fusillades of attack against each other in the wake of the announcement but Obama has stayed quiet, frustrating his party’s base.

“It’s hard to see how we avoid a Tea-Party recession* if the president who has the biggest megaphone in the country is not willing to speak clearly on the issue,” Justin Ruben, executive director of MoveOn.org, told The Hill in a Saturday afternoon interview.

For all his bluster and crank, Obama just can't manage to be pissy enough for his deep left-field base.

I checked my crystal balls this past week, and came up with two explanations for the leftist bitching over the debt deal. Ace hit on one, they're just now figuring out they lost in 2010.

Mine are 1) they see their Precious™ in deep shit in 2012. It's dawning on them that the pendulum is still swinging the wrong way, and 2) they realize the only thing right now keeping them from 4-8 years of Republican governance is a couple of dozen ninnies in the Senate.

That can't feel good. Hence the full-on, spittle flecked wigout from the left.

They've had 3 years of shoving the shit sandwich down our gullets. Any compromise, any perception that they can't kick us around anymore is intolerable. They don't just want to win, they want to punish conservatives.

Compromising, losing face, is not punishing.

And it's not acceptable to them.

I wish I could hug them all and tell them in a reassuring voice, "too fucking bad."

According to Frau Blucher at the NCEW Civility Project, I can call them bitchy if I deem it factual.

*yup, this is the new trial balloon. I expect tomorrow's Sunday news crap shows to be full of this one, and I predict we'll hear it a lot from now on.
